There are a variety of antique French style spindles, but this style caught Dave's eye while looking at some photos in a vintage spindle group. He has crafted this French style support spindle with random coves and grooves to give it an authentic period appearance. Thus, no two spindles of this type made by Dave, will be the same.
Our support spinning bowls combine the efficiency of a ceramic surface with the stability of a wide beautiful wooden base. The ceramic insert measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter, and the gorgeous base is approximately 3 inches in diameter and 2 inches in height. The ceramic spinning bowl inserts were decorated by hand with accent glazes and kiln fired. Cork has been added to the bottom of this bowl to keep the wood from scratching other hard surfaces.
